We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.

Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.

“Listen my child. Listen with the ear of your heart”
The rule of St Benedict

Positive Behaviour is a whole school approach with a strong emphasis on teaching appropriate behaviours and providing systems of support to reinforce positive behaviours. The aim of a positive behaviour approach is to actively teach and reinforce desired behaviours.

Our school agreements- Be Respectful, Safe, Responsible and a Learner are underpinned by Gospel Values which resonate with the behavioural expectations and appropriate student behaviours that contribute to the functioning of our school as a safe and supportive learning environment. St James’ agreements outline appropriate student behaviours that contribute to the functioning of our school as a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment. Students at St James Catholic Primary School are taught, encouraged and supported to demonstrate these expected behaviours.

“As a faith-filled community, fully alive in Relationships we …
welcome, collaborate, support, listen and connect to explore and make a positive difference in our world.”

Anti-bullying policy

Sydney Catholic Schools rejects all forms of bullying behaviours, including online (or cyber) bullying, by maintaining a commitment to providing safe, inclusive and respectful learning communities that promote student wellbeing for learning. Staff at Sydney Catholic Schools are committed to employing wellbeing strategies that allow for a healthy school environment where bullying is less likely to occur.

If your child is experiencing bullying of any kind, or you have a wellbeing concern, we have a number of support services available for parents/carers and students, as listed below.
